    I’m surprised by the amount of consideration you have given to a matter that is in the end so completely irrelevant to the success or failure of ministry.

    Hey Michael,

    Actually, I started this study because pastors kept asking for my thoughts on the topic.

    I’m a musician and a worship leader. In the area of worship, as in all areas, I believe we ought to be constantly evaluating our methodologies to be sure that they are in line with biblical principles and that they are the best methods we can use for God’s glory. I agree that this is not a huge issue in the broad scheme of things, but I do believe it’s worth thinking through and I pray that it can be helpful to someone.

    Dear Jason,
    Thank you for the articles on comparison and the helpful tips in part 2. Also, I believe you have chosen wisely not to dismiss the use of technology that missionaries have been using for decades. Some ministries have condemned the use of certain technologies like projection and background music, then years later, those same ministries have used them or even sold(& profited) from that which they had earlier condemned.

    Though we do not use background music for specials or choirs at our church, I believe it is unwise to condemn a technology that can be used with Biblical music. Biblical principles will allow our worship and service to be God honoring.
